Official Team Profile



Bob Jones High School logo.jpg

Bob Jones High School is located in the ever-growing town of Madison, AL. Madison County has developed from a farming community to a high-tech center that reflects the foresight, planning and hard work of people who want to shape the future yet preserve our rich heritage. iGems is a fantastic way to help teach children the importance of education and technology.


We will insert the human insulin coding part and a glucagon-like coding part into the machine. We will use a two part system and insert two separate compatible plasmids into the plasmid backbone. The machine's promoters should respond to changes in environmental glucose levels and produce either a glucagon-like peptide (with hypoglycemic environmental levels) or a human insulin peptide (with hyperglycemic environmental levels).
